Cobra turns out to be a real snake

So half way through one of the best tours in the last couple years and the doping postives are dripping out daily like chinese water torture.
I have always had a soft spot for the cocky little prick Ricco, but fuck him. I would have guessed Piepoli would have gotten caught before Ricco. It is really getting to the point, where you have to question any above average peformance. What an asshole.
I hope that this does not make this tour as meaningless as the 50 million dollar bill above. By the way in Zimbabwe right now that bill will buy you 2 loaves of bread and you would need about 5 of them to equal one US dollar. Don't laugh, the way the US economy is going, it is only a matter of time before Bono is doing debt relief campaigns in Ohio.

On a more postive note the Boston Globe had a nice tour phot series on line here. Check out H.Haussler's crash photo. Is his race number electrical taped to his frame? I can understan why a top level pro bike would not have a pump peg, but no number hanger? Not even zip ties????? Germans must be pretty cheap. Also check the beefy mount for the computer, not very "pro" if you ask me.
